Event Details

Padmasambhava also called “ Guru Rinpoche “ born miraculously in the  8th century was fully enlightened and is considered the father of Tibetan Buddhism. His prophesized of a future age when spirituality would wane. When asked by one of his close disciples when is the beginning of Dharma-ending age, Guru Rinpoche replied;

When the iron bird flies and the horses run on wheels, the Tibetan people will be scattered like ants across the world, and the Dharma will come to the land of the red men. ( The West) )

Anticipating the degeneration of the pure teachings of the Buddha . Guru Rinpoche hid TERMA, also referred to as “hidden treasures”, and prophecized the exact location and time they would be revealed.

These extraordinary Terma teachings have served the function of refreshing, and reinvigorating the Vajrayana traditions and they continue to be revealed today.

The texts of mystical revelation and revealed to visionaries are principally of two types.  Earth Termas including sacred physical objects, and mind Termas including those revealed in extraordinary dreams. The extraordinary places in Tibet where Padmasambhava practiced with his consort Yeshe Tsogyal  often sites where Termas were hidden are considered amongst the most sacred pilgrimage places in Tibet.
